I really have no use for booze aside from an occasional beer and a bottle of 12 year old Scotch I get from my boss at Xmas time - that lasts me the whole year.

Backpacking eliminated cigarettes in 1987...go out for a 10 day trip and realize you left all the cigs 20 miles back in the car. Cold turkey for sure. Any body want to sign up for my cigarette cessation program?

I have not tripped the light fantastic in several years...but we were given some tabs by Zane so I might need to check that out this summer. Backpacking in the Olympic Park is where I did that the last time...skipping through the lilly fields!

I was never a fan of anything that comes in white powder form. I was witness to the foulness of that on tour - and took notes. Just a couple of stops into the Rocky Mountain tour of '83 (Boise actually) the coke heads were at each others throats, getting the cops called at the hotel for screaming and fighting and just generally having a misrable time of it - on the other hand the flowery psychedelic skippers were in 7th heaven - even with 12 folks sleeping in a 2 person room. We saw the same UFO that Phil did...actually it had been following us since the Greek shows earlier that year, the last time I saw it was in Hartford '88 - a straight witness was there for that one, she wishes she could write it off like we could...well because of her we couldn't write it off as a hallucination either.

Let it Grow!

Glad I live in WA...both for backpacking and for initaitive 502!

I have no idea who is driving this bus!

edit for a better avalanche lilly picture.

Butane is CH3CH2CH2CH3
But-2-ENE is CH3CHCHCH3 - the CH's in the middle mean there is a double-bond between the 2nd and 3rd C's; an extra bond is taken up in both C's because it is formed between them, so they can each only have one H.
2-ButYNE is CH3CCCH3 - the two C's in the middle show you that there is a triple bond between them - they now each have 3 bonds taken up by each other, and the 4th taken up by whatever else is attached to them. Thus, they cannot bond with an H.
